1 - Objective of this homepage

In this collection there will be shown a huge summary of photos and scans of philatelic items as there are spacestamps, FDC´s, not issued postalic items, documents, flown covers, space mails, original signed  covers and stamps by the astronauts and photos partly signed from the beginning of the first astronomers to the current Sojus and chinese Shenzhou missions.

That means that we are showing items from the astrophilatelic and from the thematic area together. 

We are living in Germany and the philatelic items have been collected by ourself over the last years and will be updated frequently.

We are given as well for each chapter a short summery of  the development for each spaceprogram of the concerned nations.

We are member of the German Astrophilatelic group. 

All items are genuine and are coming out from all our friends all over the world who are collecting the same.

The objective of this summery is to make public to all interested people worldwide what space related items are availible and what was issued to proof this space events.

We personally wish to come in more contact with interested people to exchange informations and items, you can contact us via our given emailadress  (stlachhein@aol.de) or the guestbook.

The collection started with an introduction how to achieve the manned space flights today and is divided in the different rocket and space programs of the participated nations and all parts are until now under construction.

All informations are taken from the public website Wikepedia or coming  out from private communactions even from perosnal known astronauts and cosmonauts and all shown items are from the private collection.

We try to get from each mission at least one item for confirming this event.

 

(The homepage will be completed by around end of 2014, nearly all chapters are until now under construction)

 

In our collection there are shown six separated or finished chapters and collections under the items 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 and 9, as there are the following exhibition collections:

3 - The collection

The collection is divided in the different mission programs of the three main participated nations as there are US, Russia (USSR) and China.

4 - Qatar space stamps, qatar stamps collection and Qatar postal history

Qatar, a small but very important country in the gulfarea, has issued some nice space stamps honoring the development of spaceflight exploration mainly of the US.

We have presented our well known collection (only some items are missing) during a lecture about Qatar 2009 in Aschaffenburg (Germany) and have shown after a short introduction of the postalic history of Qatar the collection with all genuine stamps  and informations about it.

Some new facts and stamps are coming out from our own investigations and are published for the first time.

This chapter is nearly finished and complete!!

 

5 - Space shuttle BURAN exhibition collection and BURAN history and development (USSR)

We are presenting our BURAN exhibition collection and are given a short abstract of the history and

development of the Orbiter Shuttle of the USSR, the so called BURAN , analog to the Space Shuttle STS of the US.

This chapter is finished and complete!!

 

6 - China space stamps, Chinese manned spaceflight development (Shenzhou) and Shenzhou exhibition collection

In this chapter we are showing the development and history of manned chinese spaceflight from the beginning of the first unmanned Shenzhou flights until the current manned Shenzhou spaceflights.

We are presenting our exhibition collection with a big numbers of flown covers and stampsheets and original autographes from the selected and flown taikonauts.  

This chapter is finished and complete until Shenzhou 10 spaceflight!!

7 - Major error rarities, varities and proof of space stamps and collection

In this chapter we will present  some of the existing errors and varities  of space stamps and the existing postalic proofs of space stamps. We have collected worldwide this errors and proofs over many years, but it is clear that this chapter never can be completed due to the huge number of errors and proofs and the very high prices of this items.

On the other hand this items are often so rare that it is very difficult to find them in the market, so that it is for certain interest to present.

For this reason this chapter can only show a small selection of this items and can only stay all the time incomplete.

Nevertheless you can get a first impression what is availible outside the normal existing stamps.

This chapter is until now under construction.

8 - Milestones of the aerospace development

Here is shown a complete exhibition collection which was shown in 2014, 2015 and 2016 in Gmunden (Austria), Essen and Berlin in the competition.

9 - Spacemail and flown items

Here is shwon a short collection of items which have been flown into space to the different orbitalstations over the last 40 years as there are covers, personal mails, photos, stamps by different spaceships from the US, Russia and China. As well there are shown the personal mails which have been sent  from the ISS to the collector by the russian cosmonauts.

    aus. Man erkennt wieviel Arbeit dort drin steckt und mit wieviel Hingabe sie gestaltet
    wurde. Ich wünsche Ihnen weiterhin noch viel Spaß dabei.

    Hi Stephen,
    First of all many congratulations for your great site ! And surely the support that you got from your family to acomplish such work.
    Your site is really impressive and very helpfull for each of us (collector or others). You give to us all the general information about space in general, as also specified space history. What makes it more interesting are the magnificent fotos and videos. It's a shame I didn't see this site before.
    Also a great "Thanks/Merci/Danke/Dank U" for the comprehension between us and hoping on a new friendship between Astrophilatelisten.
    Greetings, good luck,
    Bart

    Es ist schön zu sehen, wie Dich Dein "neues" Hobby ausfüllt. Ein wunderbarer Ausgleich zu Deinem früheren Job!

    Ganz toll habt Ihr die Homepage gestaltet. Der Aufbau ist einfach super und bei mir kommen so richtig die Erinnerungen an die wesentlichen Zeitpunkte der unbemannten wie bemannten Raumfahrt. Zur Verinnerlichung muß ich mich noch schrittweise vorarbeiten. Leider habe ich meine Raumfahrexponate vor Jahren mehr oder weniger für gute Zwecke verschenkt Ich werde gleich die Homepage an meine Freunde senden wo ich glaube, dass sie sich für dieses Thema interressieren
